Editorial Reviews

"Still, the encyclopedia fills an important gap in the reference literature of the Orthodox Church. The features of the work enhance the content with beautiful illustrations, maps, a useful index, and list of entries. Finally, articles cross reference and also provide short bibliographies for further reading."  (American Reference Books Annual, 1 November 2015)
"the volume is to be recommended for the high quality of the scholarship throughout. It is a useful volume for lower-level undergraduates and even advanced secondary students." (Theological Book Review, 2016)
